StampTV video: Using Bleach

It’s been forever since I’ve used bleach with my stamping, so when Gina planned on sharing a video using the technique on StampTV today, I definitely wanted to play along!!

bleach lilies

I stamped the image from Easter Blessings with VersaMark ink & embossed with black detail embossing powder.  I chose to ‘paint’ my Easter Lilies with bleach on kraft cardstock; testing it first since it’s a light color I wasn’t sure how much of a difference the bleach would make.  I sure like the subtle change, the lilies are a pale peach color.  I colored in the leaves & grass with my peerless watercolors, I love how they look on kraft, I hadn’t tried that before and know it won’t be the last time either!  I chose to keep my card layers & embellishments to a minimum to have a somewhat Clean & Simple card!!  I love the look of the three neutrals: black, white & kraft! 

I hope you have a chance to check out Gina’s new video and play along!  If you upload a card using the technique and upload on stampTV before next week Wednesday, you will be eligible to win a free stamp set valued at $24.95 or less!  Sweet! 

Thanks for visiting me today – see y’all soon!

Love the effect of the bleach on the kraft and it looks super against the green - love the cuttled bg too!
